Help people get online
The internet is a very big part of how we help people affected by cancer. On our website, they can find quality information, a wealth of support including emotional, practical and financial, get involved with work and support us in so many ways.
So in our mission to change the lives of everyone affected by cancer, Macmillan knows the importance of helping everyone to get online.
The UK is amongst the world's most web-enabled nations. But 8.12 million people have still never used the internet (ONS Labour Force Survey Feb 2012).
That's why we're working with Go ON UK as it aims to bring the benefits of the internet to every individual and every organisation in every community across the UK. Go ON UK is a radical cross-sector partnership to make the UK the world’s most digitally capable nation where no one – old or disadvantaged- and no organisation – even the smallest – is left behind.
